Conventional wisdom is teaching us that the argument for reverse racism is rooted in theory and not in fact. Traditionally, it has been posited by individuals within the dominant race group who feel threatened by the diversity and inclusion conversation and by certain policies and practices which favour individuals belonging to minority race groups. That feeling of exclusion is real and needs to be addressed. This webinar will explore promising practices in addressing the fear of reverse discrimination and how we can work to deconstruct the myths that perpetuate it.
